Jack was eleven when the berserkers loomed out of the fog and nabbed him. "It seems that things are stirring across the water," the Bard had warned. "Ships are being built, swords are being forged." "Is that bad?" Jack had asked, for his Saxon village had never before seen berserkers. "Of course. People don't make ships and swords unless they intend to use them." The year is A.D. 793. In the next months, Jack and his little sister, Lucy, are enslaved by Olaf One-Brow and his fierce young shipmate, Thorgil. With a crow named Bold Heart for mysterious company, they are swept up into an adventure-quest in the spirit of The Lord of the Rings. Award-winner Nancy Farmer has never told a richer, funnier tale, nor offered more timeless encouragement to young seekers than "Just say no to pillaging
Yeah... sorry for the lack of a creative title, but it's true. I find it weird that they came out with the second audiobook on iTunes, and then this one... but oh well. This is a fun book about an adolesent bard apprentice, but he and his little sister, Lucy, get captured by berserkers, (AKA Vikings). I don't feel like typing about how the rest of the book goes, but you'll have to read/listen to it to find out! It's full of magic and adventure (and my favorite character of almost all time, Thorgil, who's a fiesty young berserker, and yes, a girl). I have to admit, the story is pretty slow, but it's a quick(ish) read. All in all, I loved it. Yay.
A exciting adventure
This is a book that will make you want to restart it as soon as it ends. It has a compelling story that will make you love it hero’s and hate the villains. You will see the characters grow and your opinions of them may change from hate to envy to sorrow to joy, you may never know.
Why the price
It's the best book ever.I read it 4times already so are the other 2!It cost to much for me to get the audio book but I read the real one ohh if u could tell me where I could get the real book!
